I Appear to have been Reincarnated as a Love Interest in an Otome Game: Chapter 10

Chapter 10: As I thought, Bitch’s upbringing is weird.

Author: Time for explanations.

Like always, I rendezvoused with Louis at my office. In addition, he helped with work!
It’s not as if I couldn’t do the work by myself, but since Louis is such a superb worker, I made quite the progress.

“Sorry, Louis…… You really saved me there.”

Calling him to discuss out plans, and then asking him to help with work…… I do think badly of this.
……I, it’s not like as if I left work, you know? New work just arrived, you know!?
I really do think badly of this!

“It’s alright. I’m actually surprised that you took care of all this work by yourself until now……”

But my kind future brother-in-law, like the easy and composed man he is, accepted my apology leisurely.
So I got excited.

“If you think so, could you come every time?”
“If our plan this time works out well, I can help every day.”

I was joking, but he gladly accepted.
The scheming yet kind future brother-in-law really does seem like he is going to help out.
Then, I really have to make the plan work!


After we finished work, we first discussed the current situation before we made our final decision.
First is the trend in their movements……

Sure enough, a wonderful reverse-harem had formed with Bitch at the centre.
Without worrying about how others think, they were seen chatting and giggling flirtatiously at the courtyards. Also, the six of them, even in public, were giving gifts while kneeling down to draw Bitch’s attention.
What was worse, when there was almost a fight over bitch, it was reported that one could hear the legendary ‘Stop! Don’t fight over me!’…… When I heard that, even I had a headache……

Amongst the six of them, the foreigners Henry and Jackie are not related to me so I don’t mind what they do. However, it’s problematic for the other four, you see?

First, the teacher!
Don’t lay your hands on a student so shamelessly! Does he not know the dignity of a school that even royalty attend?
Before he creates trouble, he should either fix his mentality or leave the school……
But this is ‘school.’ It’s not a place an imperial prince should abuse his power.
In addition, this place is different from modern Japan. There is no taboo on ‘teacher-student relationships’ here. The family and the stability of the House is more prioritised here.
As long as one keeps the minimal rules, some degree of free romance is allowed.
……For him, I’ll continue to observe him, and then I’ll ask the school to do something about him……

Next, Hughie!
I’m pretty I told him already? If he wants to have a relationship, take care of the problem with his fiancée already. Don’t just go flirt with Bitch!
I hear that his fiancée is crying every day. No surprise there. She is getting mocked as an ‘older woman who lost her fiancé to a younger girl’.
It has only been two weeks since school started again. She probably isn’t coping with this fast turn of events.
I’ll have to take care of him sometime. If he doesn’t change even then, I’ll have to find her a new happiness.

And then, Douglas……
Um, whatchamacallit, you’re just being taken advantage of your wound…… Don’t you think you look pitiful when you’re with bitch? I didn’t think that you were satisfied just being a sideline character?
Do you not realise how others see you……?
Or have even lost sight of your surroundings?

Finally, Robert……
………Um, ah…, I can’t help you. You’re an idiot anyways……
You don’t deserve Jessica. Robert’s parents probably wanted her to support him, but his level of idiocy far exceeds the level a sixteen-year-old girl could possibly tolerate.
There’s no girl who would be able to put up with that much neglect.
Additionally…… Louis has already encircled Jessica. The moment the betrothal is broken, the Jessica will be conquered by Louis.

However, the strange thing is, that the reverse-harem formed quicker than in the game.
Douglas was notorious for being such a difficult character to conquer. Yet when conquered, he was so tsundere that his popularity entered the top 3 in the game polls.
Hughie and Henry too took a long time……

……Could it be that…… I am the cause of this?
Because I treated Bitch coldly, did everyone go full ‘poor bitch’, or that the bitch went ‘the more rejected I am, the more passionate I get’?

……………Nope, I’m just imagining things!
I don’t have anything to do with it!!

“I’m worried about them, but what about the investigation into her?”

While thinking useless stuff, Louis asked about Bitch.
That’s right. I need to properly tell him about that.
I need his opinion as the future advisor.
Thus, I promptly laid out the information I got from Daniel.


Bitch was born between the baron and a concubine. As the bastard child she is, there was no way that the lawful wife would permit the child, so the baron had been hiding her at a villa in the countryside far away from the capital.
For some reason, Bitch was always quite popular with men, and by the age of ten there were many problems surrounding her regarding men. As the years went by, the problems intensified, yet she did not have many malice (I think this is strange!), so there were many who tried to confess to her yet did not do so.
However, when bitch turned fifteen, a big problem occurred.
The second son of the baron (who was at that time twelve years old) visited the villa to recuperate from a disease.
Of course, he fell in love with her. Then the eldest son (fourteen years old) visited his little brother, and fell in love with Bitch.
……Ultimately, brothers fought each other over their own half-sister.

Thinking that this was problematic, he planned to enrol Bitch to school to find a husband.
He quickly called her over (while the two brothers spent their time until bitch enrolled in school at the villa) and gave her the minimum education (which is still very lacking) and sent her away to school.
He probably knew that then the boys will flock to her, but he probably didn’t expect nobles to abandon their fiancées and fall madly in love with Bitch.

“This kind of bomb, I really wish he would have taken care of it himself… Well, it might be good for me though.”
“Truly…… won’t the nobles from the neighbouring country take her away?”
“……Indeed, I almost want to plead them to.”

We lock our eyes, and sigh heavily.

Bitch’s setting is still in progress, but pretty good. And they’re still chaste.

Woah, bitch, bugger, that’s some crazy stuff. Even though it could have been a holy Xwedodah union, I don’t approve of this, not at all.

    • She might also be able to easily understand people.
      Then she just needs to adapt herself to the person she is talking to and make him like her.
      Then, when her target’s love is high enough, she can go slowly back to her normal personality.
      If she does it slow enough, her target might not even realise that she isn’t acting like the girl he fell in love with.

      Basically, she is making her victims dependent of her.

      She is a true b*tch and should be executed.

      • Uhm…but it seems like she’s not sharp enough. Also, it’s really difficult to amass such a crowd simultaneously through such detailed emotional manipulation…

      • No, her being great schemer with superior abilities at reading people, she would be able to read MC too – she’d realize that he’s prejudiced against her (although she couldn’t grasp the reason) and she’d either avoid him or win him over by playing the part of a poor country girl that doesn’t understand (noble) society at all and makes lots of blunder but tries hard… I’m pretty sure that even with all the initial prejudice, it wouldn’t be that hard to establish at least a friendly relation with both Kayle and Angelica, redirecting the resentment over the broken betrothals towards the boys (I mean, at the end of the day, it’s them who are betrothed but don’t seem to be giving a f*ck about that and openly flirt with another girl).

        So no. The fact that Michelle is so bad at reading the atmosphere around Kayle contradicts the “super perceptive seductress” hypothesis. If anything, it’s more like she’s a victim of a curse, really. An “Otome protagonist curse” where she – by trying to be nice to people while also being a bit dense – ends up wrecking relationships left and right without really trying to. Just like Kayle can’t possibly avoid the “game events” even if he makes sure to be far from the place where the event was supposed to happen, Michelle has no control over her lives-wrecking “charm”. Even Kayle, conscious of the setting, has limited options – a girl without such advantage is basically defenseless against the forces of the otome game imperative.


        • I feel like Otome/harem love interests don’t really fall in love like regular people. It’s more like how a baby duck will follow around the first thing it sees after hatching. Like they have one thing, and if you are the first person who does that thing (slaps them, sticks up for them when they’re being bullied, compliments their art, beats them in a fight, comforts them, says you like something about them that everyone else hates, takes them to a place they’ve never been, cooks for them, encourages them to pursue an interest their family doesn’t value, says you aren’t scared of them, etc.) they will fall in love with you.

          Like how OG Kyle wanted someone to tell him he didn’t have to smile.


  1. Really now, I’m praying that their plan succeed~! Whew~!
    I’m getting nervous now that Jessica’s future will also depend on this, you know? like how the brother-in-laws will really fit each other as best friends with them having their loved ones, lol.

    — Thanks for the chapter~ ^^. Really like it! haha~ XD! Bitch, really bitch, lol. poor bitch, ooppss.. I mean pitiful yet not really, lol.

  2. Since it’s impossible for everyone to fall for the same type of girl, I suppose this girl is extremely manipulative and changes her character depending on who she is talking to.

    The simple fact that she said “Please don’t fight over me” proves that she isn’t dense and is aware of her harem.
    She probably has been aware of it for a long time.

    She also knows that most of those men have fiancées. But she isn’t stopping them and is actively going to them.

    So yeah, she is a b*tch.
    She probably doesn’t even understand why Kyle doesn’t like her…

    Thanks for the chapter.

    • Forgot to say:

      I don’t think that Kyle refusing her made things go faster.

      I agree with those saying that she might be his sister.
      That would explain why everything progressed this fast since she already knows in which way she has to approach her targets.

      Also, if she realised that, for some reason, Kyle was a lost cause, then she might have spent more time with the others.

      If that theory is true, I wonder how Kyle will react when he learnt the B*tch’s identity.


      • Yeah the Bitch being Kyle’s reincarnated sister is definitely looking more and more likely. Said sister was also apparently super into Kyle and was probably looking forward to finally being able to capture Kyle in real life, only to discover that real Kyle is seemingly out of reach so she went and captured all the other targets to make herself feel better.


    • I was thinking that actually acknowledging that people are fighting over you is a huge taboo for a harem protagonist.

      If she were an actual harem protagonist that the author meant to be likeable then her reaction to two dudes getting into an argument that is obviously about her would be something like, “Haha, they’re such good friends!”


  3. Pretty good back story on the batch, explains her character. Just hope we can exit the game’starts plot completely soon and see purely KylexAngelica. Oh, and Kyle seemed to get a huge upgrade from both sets of his memory being smashed together. I guess it WOULD have a similar effect to doubling your age and getting the experience/wisdom that comes along with it. Carry on, I look forward to more diabeetus.


  4. Wow, b*tch! Those pheromones you release must be at MAX all day long. Her brothers, of course, are the first major victims. Her dad should’ve just let her find a nice, inconspicuous village boy to settle down with.
    Thanks for the chapter! 😀

    • 《Because I treated Bitch coldly, did everyone go full ‘poor bitch’》
      Poor bitch??? OMG stop it already! I’m dying in here!! Hahahahaha!!!

      Btw seeing her popularity among men, “The Bitch” would’ve made a fortune if her daddy baron was kind enough to send her to a brothel, author really knows how to make her look so despicable huh?!


  5. She is a succubus incarnate that feeds herself over emotions instead of sex. I bet she knows what angle to tilt her head to look cute when “troubled” (lol)

    The only thing I didnt like this chapters is the lack of Anju-tan, but I know its necessary.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    Btw “kudarajin” is from “ridiculous” and “god” together or just a random name? XD

  6. Thanks for the chapter!

    Nice choice Kyle! Allying yourself with the smart and helpful brother in law gives you waaay more benefit than the idiot brainless friend (?) aka Robert XD

    And what’s with Bitch’s pheromone? She already has boy problem since 10 ??? O_O
    Wow..Such an excellent first-rate bitch…


  7. Well, she could be a time traveler. You do have to complete every route to unlock the harem one, after all!

    Well, probably not, but it would explain some things.


  8. Type-O

    “When I heard that, even I head a headache”

    Should replace head with had as in “had a headache”

    “As the bastard child she is, there was no way that the lawful wife would the child”

    I feel that a word was cut off between would and the. Perhaps the word is tolorate or permit?

    “enrol” = enroll

    “Well, it might me good for me though.”

    I feel that the first “me” should be a “be” as in ” it might be good for me…”


  9. Loving this story so much, and the MC is really indulging in his desires with some restraint lol, loving this thank you for translating 😀


  10. Too little Angelique in this chapter XD

    Also that was a fastforward it seems. 😮

    Thanks for doing this title. It’s one of the few that have totally different setting. Also the stuff with Bitch reminds me of Duke’s Daughter where the same happens to the villain female who remembers everything at the game ending, aka her bad end…and then the story starts. Though in it she managed to get her brother who also liked the “heroine” back to his senses. 😀


  11. It looks to me like shes just doing what every harem protagonist does? But everyone else in the comments is triggered cause shes not the main character and we’re viewing it from a 4th party perspective. If she was a male mc, all the male targets were female and she was the main character of this story instead of kyle, everyone in the comments would be completely fine with it.🤦‍♂️
